    Quick and Delicious Breakfast on the Go Ideas

    If you’ve got to blitz through the morning, sitting down and enjoying breakfast is usually the first thing to go out the window. Why not take it with you out the door instead?

    There are many ways to still enjoy the first meal of the day, even when you’re in a hurry. Here is a bit of inspiration for when you need to have your breakfast on the go.

    Breakfast smoothie

    Busy mornings and smoothies are a match made in heaven. If you’re pressed for time, there’s nothing like a fast, easy to make liquid breakfast that’s also full of delicious fruits to keep you going in the morning. Stock up on frozen bananas, mango, kiwi and other favourite fruits well in advance and you can create plenty of wonderful smoothie combinations for those crazy morning runs.

    If you’re stuck for ideas, our Green Breakfast Smoothie recipe has a tasty whole grain twist that will make mornings easier and set the family up for the day ahead. Another delicious way to start the day, our Shredded Wheat Coconut & Mango Smoothie recipe tastes like a guilty treat!  



    Milkshake breakfast on the go

    Smoothies are not the only thing food blenders are good at. Milkshakes are another on the go breakfast idea that will help make mad-busy mornings more manageable. The principle is the same: whizzing ingredients into a frothy mix you can drink on your way to work or as you’re getting the kids ready for school. Try our Curiously Cinnamon Milkshake Mash Up ideas and you can have a delicious breakfast ready in minutes. 

    Overnight cereals

    Wouldn’t it be great if breakfast was waiting for you in the fridge in the morning? Luckily there’s a way. If you’re predicting a hectic morning for the next day, just go ahead and prepare breakfast the night before. Overnight cereals are not only one of the most popular breakfasts on the go, but also the easiest recipe in the world. Add oats, yoghurt, fruit and refrigerate. That’s it!

    If you want to put a different twist on the classic recipe, our Cheerios Apple-Cinnamon Overnight Cereal and Porridge is a delicious way to enjoy your favourite cereals. Mix yoghurt, uncooked oats and cereal. Stir in apple. Refrigerate overnight and wake up in the morning to a breakfast already waiting to be served.

    Do Nestlé products in emerging countries have more salt than products in developed/developing countries?

    For the last 15 years we’ve been working to reduce the sodium (which is the major component of salt) in our breakfast cereals across the world, because we want to keep on making them more nutritious. Achieving consistency on all products, in all countries, takes time - so some may have more sodium than others. Our aim is for all our cereals – globally – to have the same reduced levels of sodium, with a target of less than 135mg per serving in all our children’s products.

    What are the health and nutritional benefits of Nestlé Gluten Free Corn Flakes?

    As well as being a healthy choice for people who want to reduce the amount of gluten in their diet, or have coeliac disease or a gluten intolerance, Gluten Free Corn Flakes are fortified with B-vitamins, folic acid and iron

    How can I find foods made with whole grain?

    Two things to remember: • Look for food labels where the word 'whole' appears in front of the name of the grain, like “whole wheat” or “wholemeal bread”. • For foods with more than one ingredient, make sure whole grain is listed towards the top of the ingredients list. The further up the list it is, the more whole grain has been used in the recipe. And look out for the percentage of whole grain. You should find this in the ingredients list too.

    I’ve heard a low GI diet can help me lose weight. Is this true?

    It’s too early to say. The science in this area is still emerging. There is evidence that low GI foods take longer to digest and help you feel satisfied for longer, but none that you’ll eat fewer calories at the next meal.

    Why does Nestlé label vegetable oil?

    Because it’s industry practice to label seasonal oils (oils that aren’t consistently available across the year). In Europe it’s now mandatory to detail the types of vegetable oils used in a food product. So it’s no longer permitted to use the term “vegetable oil” on a label.
